Ridley Scott making COD Elite content

Alien director answers the call.

Alien and Blade Runner director Ridley Scott is making content for Call of Duty: Elite, Activision has announced.

It's "exclusive episodic entertainment just built for the Call of Duty community," Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said during a presentation listened to by USA Today.

"We are working with the likes of Will Arnett and Jason Bateman, Ben Silverman [The Office executive producer] and Ridley and Tony Scott to create this content.

"Just like any other passion that people spend a lot of their free time doing, Call of Duty players share a common language and a common experience and we think we can create some entertainment content that they will love and talk about and share."

Last week Activision announced Arrested Development stars Jason Bateman and Will Arnett had signed with the mega publisher to provide original video programming for Call of Duty Elite.

Arnett will visit September's Call of Duty XP fan event to provide a sneak preview of the content.

It's unclear whether the programming Activision is talking about will be available to all Elite users, or just the even more elite paid-up members.

COD convention Call of Duty XP takes place 2nd-3rd September. We'll find out more then. It allows hundreds of gamers to run around a life-size Call of Duty map shooting each other with paint.
